If God said you could ask Him for any one thing and He would give it to you, what would you ask for? Solomon was actually given that opportunity, and he chose the wisest thing anyone could ever ask for — wisdom. We’re later told that all the people in Israel could see the wisdom of God in Solomon. As you and I go about our daily lives, can other people see God’s wisdom in our decisions, our pursuits and our words? We should ask God for wisdom so that His glory can be on display through us.

There is only one way to know for sure that our sins are forgiven and that we will spend eternity in heaven. Are you sure you’ve received the right cure for sin?
